- What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file that is stored on the user’s computer, mobile telephone or tablet when they access certain websites, applications or platforms. This file enables the user to be recognised.
Cookies are currently essential for the Internet to function and they offer numerous advantages when it comes to providing interactive services, by enhancing browsing and usability.
Cookies help websites, applications and platforms to adapt to the user’s personal needs.
Cookies cannot damage the user’s equipment. On the contrary, active cookies can help to identify and resolve errors and improve the user’s browsing experience.
One function of cookies is to store and recover information about a user’s browsing preferences or their equipment.
The specific ways in which we use this technology are described below.
- Which cookies do we use?
Owner of the cookies:
- We use own cookies, which we send to the user’s hardware from equipment or domains that we manage and use to provide the service the user is requesting.
- We use third-party cookies (such as Facebook, Google and Twitter cookies), which are used by external companies, social networks and content add-ons (for example, Google Maps). They are sent to the user’s hardware from equipment or domains that belong to a third party that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
- We use the technical cookies that are strictly necessary to enable the user to access and browse www.larespana.com.
Technical cookies enable the user to browse a website, platform or application and use the different options or services available there. These include cookies that permit management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services such as monitoring traffic and data communication, identifying the session, obtaining access to restricted areas, remembering the different items in an order, processing purchases, managing payment, monitoring fraud linked to service security, requesting registration or participation in an event, counting visits for billing purposes related to the licences for the software used to provide the service (website, platform or application), using security elements during browsing, storing video and sound content for publication, enabling dynamic content (e.g. loading animation for texts or images) and sharing content on social networks.
Owing to their technical nature, this category also includes cookies that enable the most effective possible management of any advertising spaces that the editor may include on the website, application or platform as an additional component of the design or layout of the service offered to the user based on criteria such as the content published, but without gathering user data for any other purposes such as personalised advertising or other content.
These cookies do not require the user’s informed consent.
- We use personalisation and preference cookies, which are processed by us or third parties to make it possible to remember information so that the user can access the service with certain features that may make their experience different to that of other users.
Examples of these features include language, the number of results displayed when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the browser type employed by the user to access it and the region they are accessing it from.
These cookies may require the user’s informed consent unless the user is the one who selects these features (for instance, if they select the language of a website by clicking on the flag icon for the corresponding country).
- We use analytics or measurement cookies, which are processed by us or third parties to enable monitoring and analysis of user behaviour on the websites the cookies are linked to. This includes quantifying the impact of advertisements.
The information collected using this type of cookie is used to measure activity on websites, applications or platforms for the purpose of improving products or services offered based on analysing data on how visitors use the service.
These cookies require the user’s informed consent.
- We use behavioural advertising cookies, which are processed by us or third parties, to store information about the user’s behaviour that is obtained by continually observing their browsing habits. This makes it possible to develop a specific browsing profile for users and show them advertising based on that profile.
These cookies require the user’s informed consent.
Cookie storage duration:
- We use session cookies, which are designed to gather and store data while the user is on a website. They are normally used to store information that needs to be kept only to provide the service the user requests on a single occasion (for instance, a list of products acquired) and so they disappear at the end of the session.
- We use persistent cookies, which are a type of cookie that stores data on the user’s hardware so they can be accessed and processed for a duration defined by the controller of the cookie. This duration may span from a few minutes to several years.
This type of information obtained through cookies will not be disclosed to third parties or used for unsolicited communications.
